Chapter 21: Her Smugness
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
"Is your brother here?" Chu Wuyou raised her eyebrows. Her tone was nonchalant yet direct.
"You knew all along that my brother won't be here today?" He Yunan was completely stunned and stared at her in disbelief. How was this possible? His elder brother never objected. He always thought that his elder brother was very committed to the family.
How could Chu Wuyou be so sure that his elder brother will not be here today?!
Chu Wuyou smiled without saying a word. With Chu Ninger present, she knew that today's engagement will not go on successfully. This was also the reason why she did not protest all these while.
Why should she take matters into her own hands when somebody else could help her solve her problems? It was not worth the trouble since it was both physically and mentally exhausting.
"Are you certain that my brother won't be here today?" He Yunan was unconvinced.
"He'll definitely be present but the engagement won't take place." Chu Wuyou had to tolerate He Yunan's inquisitive nature but who was it that gave her the upper hand over him?
Chu Wuyou was well aware of Chu Ninger's tactics. It was not difficult for her to predict what would happen today.
"Why?" He Yunan had always been an arrogant person and thought highly of his intelligence. However, at that moment he just could not figure out why the engagement would not take place.
"You'll know soon enough." Chu Wuyou expressed a subtle smile. Where was the fun if she revealed everything?
She would enjoy the performance if somebody wanted to put on a show. It was rather interesting. She hoped that it would be an exciting performance and that Chu Ninger would not let her down.
With his eyes fixed upon Chu Wuyou, He Yunan's heart skipped a beat. Who said that she was stupid? Who said that she was an idiot? She had unknowingly taken control of the whole situation.
"I really don't wish to hurt my elder sister. I felt my heart shatter into a million pieces when I heard that you were about to be engaged to her. I was deeply sad and hurt but I held on to my feelings. I thought that I could control my feelings towards you but it has come to a point where I realized that I couldn't do it anymore. What should I do? What should I do?" Chu Ninger covered her face with her hands as she sat on a sofa in He Yufei's luxurious apartment. Grief and torment could be seen on her face.
Chu Ninger was skilled at playing hard to get and was already a master of this tactic.
She knew that He Yufei liked her. She also knew that he agreed to be engaged with Chu Wuyou so that he could test her reaction.
Therefore, she was well aware that He Yufei would call off his engagement to Chu Wuyou if she showed the slightest hint of interest.
The engagement had been planned three months earlier but Chu Ninger had only expressed her feelings towards He Yufei on the day of the engagement.
Her real objective was intriguing.
"Don't worry, I'll take care of it." He Yufei took her into his arms. His eyes shone with warmth, affection and pure joy.
As long as she loved him, he would take care of other matters.
Chu Ninger leaned on his shoulder and her body jolted slightly as she sobbed. A smug appeared across her face. Everything had gone according to plan.
She would ruin Chu Wuyou completely today.
